Pharmacokinetics of a long-acting subcutaneous eprinomectin injection in semi-domesticated reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) – A pilot study -

Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) are exposed to the pathogenic parasitic nematode Elaphostrongylus rangiferiduring grazing. The severity of disease is dose-dependent. Prophylactic anthelmintic treatment is needed toimprove animal health and reindeer herding sustainability. Herds are traditionally only gathered once during thesummer, requiring a drug with a persistent effect. In this study we investigated the suitability of […]

Acute Toxicity Testing of the Tire Rubber–Derived Chemical 6PPD-quinone on Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) and Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) -

Recent identification of 6PPD-quinone as the chemical causing acute toxicity in coho salmon has led to substantial concern regarding the toxicity of this contaminant for other aquatic species. Environmental occurrence of 6PPD-quinone is probably high, because it is an oxidation product of a common tire rubber additive. Research on 6PPD-quinone toxicity in fish has revealed […]
